Too Much ? Seed Cycling

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

Right note to self : in future don't try to change too many things at the same time!

Why do I say this? Well I decided to do a two day drop with my meds so I am now on 15mg every day. woooho or not!

I also decided to try seed cycling. This is when a woman takes certain seeds on days 1-14 of her cycle and then different seeds from 15 to 28.

I started half way through my cycle and was fine on sesame seeds, sunflowers seeds and evening primrose oil. Started on the flaxseed and pumpkin seeds and my stomach started to feel off. My mood dipped big style. To the point that my OH noticed it. I felt lethargic and sick. Nothing seemed to settle me.

So I turned to the energy work I use, Energy Alignment Method. I asked the sway(Google it) if I should stop taking the flaxseed and it gave me a I have stopped.

I will wait for my stomach to settle with the help of some probiotics and then return to the seed cycling without the flaxseed.

My moods have been all over the shop. I wake feeling anxious and nauseous. I want to rest..........I have to deal with old thoughts and patterns trying to put me off kilter. I veer from happy to sad and back again. I wonder if the meds jump was too big, or is it my hormones, the weather, my OH, bla bla bla.

Anyhoo I think I am settling and refuse to change meds again at least for 4 weeks. Obvs if I feel really bad I will increase just till I stabilise but I really don't want to.

Anyone else tried seed cycling??
